Elon Musk just hinted that the long-awaited version of the Tesla Model S Plaid is not far off. The lap record at the Nurburgring, the model will compete with electric cars Porsche Taycan.
Earlier this week on Twitter Executive Director, Tesla posted a photo of Herbert Raggle Tarlek Jr. from the TV series “wkrp in Cincinnati”. The character, played by actor Frank Bonner, dressed in a checkered suit, and Elon Musk writes under it: “One day I’ll wear this outfit”.
Seems pretty obvious that Musk referred to the upcoming version of Model S with a maximum cruising range on a single charge or for a version of Model X Plaid. This caused rumors that Tesla may present the Plaid Model S and Model X in the upcoming event Battery Day, which is scheduled for September 22. If both models really make their debut at the exposition, you can be sure that fans of Tesla will be delighted.
The truth is that the audience for quite a long time waited for the Plaid model. Last year Musk started persistently to promote the Model S Plaid, promising that she will beat the lap record electric sedan Porsche Taycan at the Nurburgring. For about four weeks after this statement, on the famous race track had seen a lot of prototype Model S.
Tesla Plaid is equipped with three motors, but it is unclear whether once upgraded the vehicle battery 100 kWh. However, a Tesla model Plaid will be extremely fast and can definitely leave all its competitors far behind.
